Wow, late to the party on the snes emulator I guess apple. I've been playing emulators on my android phones with a Wiimote for awhile and if gamestop doesn't like used games they should stop passing off used games for new ones.

Mega Man Universe seems sick and it you can essentially re-skin Mega Man as Ryu (and I'm guessing other Capcom stars) it should be pretty interesting. Akuma would be rad with some nice air hadoukens, he'd fuck shit up easy.

Red Dead Redemption should lay off any employee that had something to do with the ending/after the ending.

I really hate how expensive games are and shit. I own a total of 4 games for my 360. It's pointless to buy a game that costs like what, a 3rd or so of a new system? I just GamyFly games now.

I want some of that jerky!

You must have a rich family, a really good job with great pay, little bills, or you've won the lottery.

Or burn the games.

So which is it?
